Phi Phi tourist deaths may be due to diet

When travelling in other countries, most people tend to be a little bit careful about what they eat. However, there are so many great restaurants in Thailand that eating out is usually a fun and carefree experience.

The deaths of two female tourists on the island of Phi Phi near Phuket earlier this month have been a mystery for several days. However, recent preliminary test results show that their deaths may be the result of food poisoning.

Indications of microbial infection were found in blood samples taken from the bodies of USA citizen Jill St Onge and Norwegian Julie Bergheim, who were found dead in their guesthouse rooms at the start of May

“The commander of the Royal Thai Police has ordered the lab work expedited because the embassies of the two deceased tourists want to know the cause of the death as soon as possible,” Major General Pasin Noksakul was quoted as saying by the Phuket Gazette this week. Although the deaths of these tourists has been a shock to the community of Phi Phi, it is important to remember that these are isolated incidents. Thousands of tourists flock to the picturesque island each year, and the reports of problems are remarkably low.
